Owner of YogAlign L.A., Certified YogAlign Instructor & Coach
"Coming from a solid background as a professional dancer, I appreciate the subtleties in the techniques of YOGALIGN. I can say with certainty that YOGALIGN is a practice beneficial to everyone of all ranges of motion and flexibility. The simplicity in achieving any goal through proper posture and alignment is astounding. A new consciousness opens up, not only in the body, but also in the mind and spirit." ~ Katerina Goode
Born in the heart of Europe, the Czech Republic, KATERINA GOODE started at the age of 3 with figure ice-skating, gymnastics, ballet and synchronized swimming. Her high energy, passion for movement and love of dance led her to obtain a Master's degree from the University of Performing Arts in Prague.
Since then she has been performing and dancing on stage and screen, both in Europe and the United States. She performed in many productions at the Los Angeles Opera, where she danced and choreographed (since 2005).
Since the beginning, Katerina has had a very spiritual approach to her life and her art, (she is also a painter and a photographer) and after many years of practicing yoga, she felt a calling to get certified as a yoga instructor. She specifically chose a renowned yoga school, Mana Yoga school, at the pure, vibrant and mystical Hawaiian Island KAUA’I, where she studied the YOGALIGN method under Michaelle Edwards.
Skeptical of this new unique yoga style at first, she quickly recognized the healing benefits of this practice in herself and others and how it transforms bodies of any age, shape and form into correct posture alignment sometimes in a matter of only a couple of sessions!

Now, as the only certified teacher in the YOGALIGN method in Los Angeles, she is looking forward to using her skills to lead others to realize a body free of stress and tension, to guide them through a different way of thinking, breathing and to achieve a deep awareness of their body, mind, and spirit. Katerina is also a REIKI practitioner ( studied under Janelle Lynne) and loves to include guided meditations to her training sessions.
Katerina works with students both privately and in a class setting.
For a private coaching session with Katerina:
"Working with Katerina changed my life! I've always slouched and had frequent back pain. After just three two-hour sessions there was a noticeable difference in my posture. People actually asked if I'd grown taller! She taught me how to stand properly and how to properly stretch and exercise to strengthen my body without harming it. I'd highly recommend Katerina and YogAlign for anyone wanting to make a positive change in their health and posture. I can't wait to go back again!" ~ J.R. Petix
“Katerina has a remarkable consciousness and awareness of the body and movement. A physical intuition and connectedness, that makes her a natural teacher and trainer. Her knowledge and passion for movement and dance extends into her yoga and fitness practices, which she readily shares with those wishing to learn from her. She intrinsically understands a body's need for balance. Thus, through clear goals, Katerina (gently) guides each client to find the equilibrium within.”
